I can’t tell you how many… ahem… strange phone calls I’ve answered in the past nine years of working in the broadcasting business, but let’s just say it’s been enough to fill a book or two (Hmmmm… maybe soon).
A new station in Scranton, PA has a segment where they air viewer phone calls and after a few tornadoes popping up in the area recently, one viewer claimed to know exactly why.
The best part about being a parent is not the smiles, the unconditional love, the laughs, or even the fact that you get to raise a little piece of you and your significant other to be an upstanding citizen of the world.
No. It’s definitely the endless supply of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and chicken nuggets that fill your house. Your kid only needs 6 chicken nuggets, but you make 18. Just in case. Yeah, your kid can only eat 1/4 of a box of Kraft Mac and Cheese, but you better make 2 boxes, just in case.
The company that has been giving back to deprived dads for so long is now wanting to give back to moms this Mother’s Day.
If you’re looking for that perfect last-minute Mother’s Day gift, here’s all you need to know: Get her a free $100 and blasted on booze. Here’s how. You’re welcome.
Long story short: Keanu Reeves is one of the greatest human beings on the planet.
Short story long: Mr. Reeves was recently on a flight from San Francisco to L.A. when the plane had to make an emergency landing in Bakersfield, CA.
Rather than just rent a fancy car for himself and take the 2-hour drive alone, Reeves helped organize a road-trip with his fellow stranded passengers and bonded with them on the trip through the power of trivia, music, bananas, Gatorade and eventually, Carl’s Jr.
And the man who shot the video on Instagram wanted to follow Keanu’s well-known philanthropic endeavors and asked anyone who might have seen this video to consider donating to a charity. He even listed a few of his favorites:
I was wearing my IronMan finisher shirt tonight. A 7-year-old walked right up to me and said: “Are you Iron Man?” Me: “ummm, I don’t th…” 7-year-old girl: “Nevermind. You’re too squishy and Iron Man has muscles.” Well… guess I’m fat now.
I have two passions in life: Fashion and corn dogs.
The two go hand-in-hand when you think about it. A corn dog is just a hot dog with a fancy bread dress.
So while eating corn dogs and watching the Oscars red carpet Sunday night, I made a list of my favorite outfits. However, rights to these photos can be expensive and I don’t have money to use them (I’m eating corn dogs for crying out loud). So I’m forced to improvise.
But necessity is the mother of invention, so I invented Crayon News.
People have some stupid ideas, but the other day I saw one of the stupidest: A 22-pound dumbbell phone case.
Yeah. This thing is being sold by a company in Japan and while the dude modeling it looks nice enough (and jacked, surely due solely to his 22-pound weight curls he does while browsing for supplements and looking at Instagram photos of himself in bodybuilding competitions), there’s no way carrying around your phone while it’s attached to a 22-pound dumbbell is in anyway convenient.
But was I missing something here? Was this an opportunity? I decided to go that route and look at it as a way to enter the emerging market of phone cases. That Japanese company sold at least one (maybe).
I bet I could invent a cool and totally useful phone case and sell at least two!
Here’s what I came up with: The Coffee With Cory Colander Phone Case!
A guy named Nick from Canada recently shared a story on Facebook about how he had been banned from a hotel due to an incident that involved seagulls and a suitcase full of pepperoni.
It happened in 2001, which means there’s no viral video that goes with it for me to share. However, as I do in any situation like this, I improvised and brought back a Coffee With Cory orignal segment: Crayon News.
And if you just want to see the tale told through awesome crayon drawings I did without any context… here you go!
